stevens. i'm i'll see you right here at 6:00 p.m. eastern on the fox news channel. >> paul: hillary clinton suggested that the consulate attack in benghazi involved the al-qaeda affiliate in north africa it was like will goly the work of the terrorist group. that admission led to many questions what took the administration so long with john mccain and lindsay graham issuing this statement. we recognize that al-qaeda involvement in the terrorist attack that killed four americans is an inconvenient truth for a president that claims to be destroying al-qaeda. but it's not too much to ask why the administration has taken so long to state what appeared obvious on what really happened on september 11th, 2012. we're a back with our panel. so given all that we've learned in the last couple of weeks. how big a security failure was that attack on the consulate? >> it was far bigger than this administration is willing to admit. we knew the security situation in benghazi was getting out of control. there were attack on the british consulate which was closed and there with a attacks on convoy an
of the assault that killed our ambassador chris stevens and the three other brave americans and when they knew it. >> there are no words that excuse the killing of innocents. there is no video that justifies an attack on an embassy. >> it was a terrorist attack. the reason i think it clearly was a terrorist attack is because a group of terrorists obviously conducted that attack on the consulate. and against our individuals. >> ambassador rice should resign but also we should investigate and find out how high up this went and and i would hope the administration would voluntarily come forward and say whey they gave out this false information when they had to know there was so much more out there and yet they wanted to rule out terrorism from the start. >> geraldo: calling for ambassador rice's administration. what did the administration know and when can they know it? >> john: issa is on the phone from his home state of georgia. what do you think of peter king's call for ambassador rice to resign? >> i think ambassador vice a talented lady who may be a fall person for administration. she would have
talking about libya, the middle east and ambassador chris stevens. the speech, which was seen by american voters and viewers around the world, mentioned stevens 12 times. as the president paid tribute to him right from the start. >> chris stevens loved his work. he took pride in the country he served, and he saw dignity in the people that he met. and two weeks ago, he traveled to benghazi to review plans to establish a new cultural center and modernize a hospital. that's when america's compound came under attack. >> that's the first we learned about exactly what stevens was doing in benghazi, a city the u.s. had been warned was not safe. and the president continued in his speech vowing to find the killers. >> the attacks on the civilians in benghazi were attacks on america. we are grateful for the assistance we received from the libyan government, and from the libyan people. there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice. >> relentless in tracking down the killers, and bringing them to justice. it's a promise. but does that pr
, a pro gadhafi facebook page mentioned his running habits and a picture of ambassador stevens. the posting directed a threat against stevens. issa says stevens stopped his morning runs for about a week and then resumed them. in june, an ied was successfully placed at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, blowing a hole in the security perimeter gate, big enough for 40 people to go through. and in the weeks before the september 11th attacks, unarmed libyan guards working at the consulate were warned by family members to quit their jobs, because of, quote, rumors in the community of an impending attack. those are just a few of the 13 things that darrell issa listed. and he also included this major allegation. according to issa, multiple u.s. federal government officials have confirmed to the committee that prior to the september 11th attacks, the u.s. mission in libya made repeated requests for increased security in benghazi. the mission in libya, however, was denied these resources by officials in washington. the state department has responded to darrell issa's letter. here is spokes
stevens to go to benghazi. it was a serious mistake for them to have a marine detachment at our facility in benghazi. i'll say this for stevens. he was a brave guy. he was involved in a transition and wanted to be involved in the transition for building a new libya. you have to take some kind of risks like that. >> there is no question about that. but people knew that libya was a terrorist center. almost all of our facilities is secured by marine guards. it would be strange marine guards guarding bahamas but not in tripoli. >> so why did the administration go to the story. it was all about the video reaction in the muslim world -- let's face it an obscure youtube video that nobody knew about until after the riot started? >> i think the key question. i don't know why they went to that narrative. what is interesting the secretary of state hillary clinton stepped off that narrative herself. when she was at the united nations, also said that they knew that al-qaeda had been active in the arabian peninsula. it seems to me that the secretary of state is distancing herself from the white house
have requested any diplomatic cables that might have come from ambassador chris stevens. what are you hoping to learn, senator, from those cables? >> first of all, it was myself and the senator from tennessee. >> sorry. the question was to you since you discovered the cables. >> first of all, cnn uncovered the diary of craig stevens at the scene. the diary said that craig stevens wrote he was in danger and on al qaeda's hit list and i cannot believe they wouldn't have sent cables to inform them of the danger and i think that is what happened. i think the state department should be forthright and know what communications they had. and if the united states state department and the country knew in advance of the attack that the ambassador felt like he was in danger of his death or imminent demise from al qaeda and we didn't take measures, that is aan appalling message to the ambassadors representing america. >> you requested them. can you subpoena the items? >> the committee can move forward and we talked to leadership of the committee. if they claim executive privilege and denies it, se
chris stevens. >> reporter: with a tribute to a u.s. ambassador to libya, attacked and killed in the dead of night in benghazi two weeks ago today. he extommed the humanity and hope stevens stood for. today, we must affirm that our future will be determined by people like chris stevens, and not by his killers. >> reporter: but, in many ways, the president's speech seemed targeted at his domestic audience -- accused by republicans of glibly down playing the unrest in the muslim world, the president demanded an end to the violence. >> there is no speech that justifies the mindless violence. there are no words that excuse the killing of innocents. >> reporter: and while only days ago, the white house was asking youtube to review whether that anti-muslim film violated the terms of use -- today the president offered a full throated defense of freedom of speech. >> like me, the majority of americans are christian, and yet we do not ban blasphemy against our most sacred beliefs. >> reporter: that was followed by a call to stop those who fan the flames against the west and its allies.
's speech, including his powerful trib but to murdered ambassador chris stevens coming up in just a second. >>> also in this half hour, officially fed up. football fans are still fuming over that botched call by the replacement refs. so many people are venting on our facebook page. we're going to share a few of the juicy one s coming up in just a second. everybody is talking about the end of that monday night game. >> a fair call for those who live in seattle. outside of seattle, botched call. >> indeed. man. >>> forget living large. in san francisco, go small or go home. we'll give you've the nickel tour of some mini-sized apartments. when we say mini, we are talking -- >> like 150 square feet. so think about that for a second. >> like nada. >> i don't know how they do it. >> people get very inventive. if it saves rent money. not a bad thing. we'll see if you can do it in just a minute. >>> plus, lady gaga, of course, is known for revealing quite a bit. there she is right there. but now she strips down to reveal a fuller figure. and to explain also why she is proud of the way she looks. c
of the president and white house of the murder of ambassador christopher stevens and three others. john kerry is rumored to be the president's choice to be hillary clinton's replacement. all 18 members of which, republicans and democrats, have signed a letter acceptability to the administration asking for a full accounting of the benghazi terrorist attacks and the events in yemen and egypt. the white house continues to give every appearance of stone walling, both the congress and the press. almost three weeks have passed since those attacks, and leaked from within the white house, an intelligence community suggests the obama administration has been involved in an outright cover up. there are reports tonight that officials within the administration were concerned from the very beginning about the message the white house chose to push after the attack. the attack that was spontaneous they said, and not at all the work of terrorists. here's white house spokesman jay carney back on the 14th of september. >> the incident in benghazi, as well as elsewhere, but these are all being investigated, what
diary. for more on this, i'm joined by "new york times" reporter steven lee myers. and daniel byman, director of the center for peace and security studies at georgetown university. steven lee myers, let me start with you. two top administration officials say it was terrorism. one makes a direct link to an al qaeda group but how much and what exactly is known at this point about the attack in benghazi? >> well, i think administration is clearly trying to learn more. from the first day they've launched an investigation headed by the f.b.i., of course. then you have an internal review. and they've been very careful not to jump to conclusions, if you will. and that's led them to sort of change-- not change, evolve their story a little bit each day. you learn a little bit more. the question of whether or not it was a terrorist attack. initially it seemed to be more of a mob or riot that was prompted by the video that's been circulating and causing protests across the region. that now seems not to have been the case. it seems to have been a much more organized attack that was perhaps spar
and gentleman, i would like to begin today by telling you about an american named chris stevens. chris was born in a town called grass valley, california, the son of a lawyer and a musician. as a young man, chris joined the peace corps, and taught english in morocco. and he came to love and respect the people of north africa and the middle east. he would carry that commitment throughout his life. as a diplomat, he worked from egypt to syria, from saudi arabia to libya. he was known for walking the streets of the cities where he worked -- tasting the local food, meeting as many people as he could, speaking arabic, listening with a broad smile. chris went to benghazi in the early days of the libyan revolution, arriving on a cargo ship. as america's representative, he helped the libyan people as they coped with violent conflict, cared for the wounded, and crafted a vision for the future in which the rights of all libyans would be respected. and after the revolution, he supported the birth of a new democracy, as libyans held elections, and built new institutions, and began to move forward after dec
from both sides of the aisle. attack in benghazi that left four americans dead, including chris stevens, ambassador to libya. molly henneberg is live in washington. >> molly: the white house and state department are defending ambassador susan rice. a spokesman for barack obama says she has done extraordinary work for the american people. also democratic senator john kerry called rice, quote a remarkable public servant and state department put out a statement defending rice's comments to those sunday shows. the statement said, quote, at every turn, ambassador rice said she was providing the best information and best assessment that the administration had at the time. based on what was provided to ambassador rice and other senator senior intelligence committee but they knew one day of the assault that it was a coordinated terror attack likely tied to al-qaeda. congressman king wants to know why ambassador rice went on tv five days after the attack and said otherwise. >> the entire administration, miss informed the world and she was our representative to the world explaining what happened.
stevens and three other americans were killed in the september 11th attack in benghazi and molly henneberg is following the story live in washington what happens next. >> she has her supporters including the president saying she's done extraordinary work at the united nations and providing the best knowledge that the administration had at the time. and john kerry, democratic chairman of the foreign relations committee says she's a quote enormously capable person, but republican congressman peter king is it not convinced. he wants to know why five days after the attack that killed ambassador chris stevens and three others, ambassador rice stated publicly on several talk shows it was a spontaneous attack that grew out of an anti-muslim video when there was evidence it was a coordinated terror attack. >> ambassador rice should resign and we should investigate how high up this went and if the administration would voluntarily come forward and why they gave out this false information when they had to know there was so much else out there and yet, they wanted to rule out terrorism from the start.
for removing that post? first, as we know, the diary of our fallen ambassador christopher stevens was uncovered at the site of the terrorist attack. according to cnn, he had concerns about his safety. this blatantly contradicts the state department's now deleted memo. since that discovery secretary of state hillary clinton has denied the concerns. remember this? >> there's one report suggesting that ambassador stevens that he was on a, quote, al-qaeda hit list. is this a scurrilous humor, gallous humor when one is workg in a period of great difficulty and challenge or is there something more to what he allegedly -- i stress that word -- said? >> as to your question, i have no information or reason to believe there's any basis for that. >> sean: despite the fact that our own ambassador e wrote it in his own diary, we're supposed to believe he never mentioned any of these concerns to his superiors, no emails, no diplomatic cables, nothing? secretary clinton also claims that the administration had no information to suggest that our assets in libya were ever at risk, but in light of the news that t
cnn's reporting, but it was found in ambassador steven's diary and believed that he was an al qaeda terror hitless. there was a question about whether he communicated that to his state department. as one would assume he would have. you just have to believe that the ambassador is afraid for his life and believes he is on a hitless and there was no discussion without with this bosses. now they want to see communication between mr. stevens and the state department prior to his murder and if there is a communication that shows the state department and the 9/11 anniversary, have he is an adequately protected, he is on the ground and trying to target the consulate, might that not have some political ramifications? >> the political ramifications will come from the voters. congress, republican leaders, outspoken conservatives who are trying to politicize all this, including mitt romney, it has backfired. this is the proper role of congress to investigate this and it should be done dispassionately. it will not be concluded by the election. megyn: i will give you the final word, ed. >> all th
that might have come from ambassador chris stevens, what motivated you to make such a request. what are you hoping learn from the cables? >> first of all, it was myself. >> sorry. it was to you. >> right. first of all, cnn uncovered the diary of chris stevens at the scene. he thought he was in danger and on al qaeda's hit list. i can't believe that a u.s. ambassador who would write that would probably not send a cable to the u.s. state department. i think the state department should be forth write. we should know what communications they had leing up to september 11th, and, if, in fact, the united states state department knew in advance of the attack this ambassador felt like he was in danger of death or imminent demise from action and we didn't take action to secure him, that sends an appalling message to ambassadors aren't the world representing united states. >> if you requested them, can the committee subpoena the items if you don't get them? >> they can move forward and we have talked with members of the committee and the leadership. if the administration claims executive privilege or
of his time to chris stevens, the movie, so, why is the administration hesitant to use the word terror? a key foreign policy victory of this administration was the killing of osama bin laden. and this summer at a fund-raiser, the president said al-qaeda is on the run and we got bin laden. well, as we said that july night, the part about al-qaeda on the run didn't look that way to us. al-qaeda linked militants were there on the libyan weapons obtained after the u.s. and nato intervention in that country and now that four americans have been killed in north africa by extremist groups, the question remains. should the united states have known this attack on the american ambassador was coming and did the administration lie about intelligence that al-qaeda linked groups were responsible for his death for the past two weeks? representative mac thornberry is "outfront" tonight. good to see you, sir. >> glad to be here. >> i know this is an issue you care a lot about. you've spent time in mali in the past. you've been briefed on the situation in benghazi. at that briefing, were you told that a
